Album Review
D. Cannibal
Reviewed 2011-04-09
Another offering of cannabinoid-inspired Sabbath metal from these British stoners. Down-tuned, slow and heavy, pentatonic riffage and a smoky, drugged-out atmosphere complete with psychedelic, echoing vocals and droning drums. What else do you expect from these guys at this point - something new? All these Brits do here is prove that they are one of the least versatile bands in all of metal. That said, it's catchy, it's got the right vibe for 420, so it's enjoyable, even if it's nothing new.

1. Charging, rockin, power chord riffs, pummeling drums.
2. A little more upbeat and epic in melody.
3. A low, long, evil dirge that snakes its way along.
4. Demonic, evil riff, distorted as fuck vox. BEST TRACK
5. Slow, lumbering, drifting; watch the smoke rise out of your bong.
6. Bluesy, invigorating rocker with unintelligibly warped vocals
7. Interesting riff, slow and heavy done right. OTHER BEST TRACK
8. extremely long distortion and feedback outro
